Despite Sony last year signing with Netflix to show all of their Spider-Man films, it's been convinced today that a live-action series in the Spiderverse will be produced and aired over at Amazon Prime. Particularly, one focused on Spider-Man Noir, an alternate version of the popular webslinger who is older and more experienced, donning a hat and coat over his costume while also carrying firearms. This will be the first live-action appearance by of the popular Spider-Man variant following his animated appearances in the hit 2018 film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (voiced by Nicolas Cage) and the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man, voiced by Milo Ventimiglia.
Unlike the hit animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, the series will take place in its own universe and will not feature Peter Parker as Spider-Man. This is the second known Prime Video project based on Marvel characters whose rights are controlled by Sony. It follows the already-announced Silk: Spider Society which will see Angela Kang at the helm as showrunner. Spider-Man Noir, on the other hand, will be written by Oren Uziel who previously co-wrote The Lost City with Sandra Bullock along with 2021's Mortal Kombat and The Cloverfield Paradox. He will also serve as an executive producer alongside Amy Pascal while Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will produce the series just as they produced Into the Spider-Verse.
Spider-Man Noir first debuted in the comics in 2009 as part of Marvel's Noir universe, set in Depression-era New York City which saw a variant on the classic origin story of the webslinger which saw him bitten by a spider hidden inside a stolen artifact. He then has visions of a spider god who grants him superpowers. While the setting in the series has been confirmed to be the same, it hasn't been confirmed yet if the origins of the character's superpowers will remain the same. Stay tuned!
